Well....according to this...

you can use a total two ohm load or a total four ohm load (and I imagine anything in between).

If you wire the speakers in series, the impedance adds.

If you wire them in parallel the impedence = (R1*R2)/(R1+R2) where R1 is the impedance of one speaker and R2 is the impedance of the other.
