I have a receiver 6 to 16 ohm 7.1 and 8 ohm speakers. Is it ok to wire two speakers together at amp? Thanks for your time

It will be a lower impedance than the amp is rated. You will end up with a 3.7 ohm load (1/(1/8 + 1/7.1)) that is way lower than the minimum 6 ohm load the amp is rated. You could damage the amp. Especially if you play anything loud.
