Please check with the manual of your receiver whether it is capable of running 4 ohm speakers.
if yes, then please go ahead, you will not loose any Sound quality. Sound quality will depend a lot on the performace of the speaker as well as the frequency range it can deliver.
If no, please do not connect. Though, you might be able to play and listen to the music, but it will overload your receiver!!
If you are not sure, please let me know the brand and model of your receiver and I can check for you.
Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!

Basically you can use any speaker as long as you use the volume button wisely. Damage will only occur if you raise the volume level to the extremes. Bigger speakers should be no problem, if you want bi-amping, your speakers should support that as well.

SOURCE: can I mix 6 and 8 ohm speakers?
Most Yamaha HTR's are high current receivers so setting the receiver to 8 ohms and running the 6 ohm speakers shouldn't be a huge problem. I wouldn't crank the volume though if i were you but at a decent level you should be fine.

SOURCE: pushing 4 ohm speaker systems
Officially this receiver supports only 6 and 8 ohm speakers. But for surround speakers it should not do any harm, because they are not played at full volume. But be sure to set yamaha for 6 ohm speakers.
Using only 4 ohm speakers makes the amplifier work more hard and produce more heat, that's why you can't use it at high volume.
