Will running both sets of speakers simultaneously (rated at different ohms 6 & 8) harm the Yamaha amp rated at 8 ohms?

You can probably run the 6 ohm speakers by themselves without issue.

...but if you put each 6 in parallel with an 8, you could have problems because now you are looking at about 3 ohms which may cause a problem with the amp because it's going to have to supply a lot more current than it's designed to.
