Default Impedance Question

I have a receiver (Sony STR-DG520) that says Impedance of 8-16 Ohms on the rear. I have one set of 5.1 Samsungs that all say 3 Ohms on the rear and I have a set of 2.1 Bose that say 4-6 Ohms on them.

I don't blast my speakers ever, and they are rarely what I would call "loud" ( I'm no more than 10 feet away from them).

My question is, does this matter? Can I use these speakers with my receiver without chancing damage to the receiver?

Can you...you COULD, but it is not advisable. The lower the ohms, the harder the speakers are to drive. If you have 4 ohm speakers and are trying to drive them with an 8 ohm receiver, that receiver will be working very hard. If you have a 4 ohm amp powering 8 ohm speakers, that is not a problem.
