Can I plug in two 4 Ohm Speakers to an 8-16 Ohm Receiver?

I have a Sony PVM-2030 and I only have two 4 Ohm speakers. However the TV says "SPEAKER USE 8-16 OHM" I was thinking that by having two 4 Ohm speakers hooked up, it will be combining it to 8 Ohms. Is this how it works? Do I need two 8 Ohm speakers?

It doesn't work that way, but you can use the 4 ohm speakers with little or no problem. Amplifier outputs are forgiving of such mismatches unless you have a very powerful amplifier that you're running at the max.
-------------
For the other responder who believes I'm "misinformed," I have run 4 ohm speakers with 8 to 16 ohm output amplifiers many, many times over several decades of experience with tube and transistor amplifiers, and I've never blown a speaker or a final amplifier circuit PROVIDING that the output is kept reasonable as I stated above. Yes, the lower impedance of a 4 ohm load is not a perfect match for an 8 to 16 ohm output circuit and running such an arrangement at high power can bring problems. So yes, it's not something that's recommended. But this asker wants to know if he can use two 4 ohm speakers with his PVM-2030, and the answer is clearly yes if the precaution I offered is followed.
