16 Ohm

Is it ok to use an 8 Ohm amplifier with 4 and 6 Ohm speakers?

I bought a set of (5.1) speakers on a car boot sale the other week. The small speakers are 4 ohms and the sub is 6 ohms. I then found a fairly priced amplifier, which says 8-16 Ohms on the back. Would it still be ok to connect my speakers to it?

What type of amplifier is it?

From your description, you seem to have bought a stereo amplifier (2-channels) and you are trying to hook up a set of home cinema speakers (5-channels).

If that is the case, it will not work. Even if it did, you won't get surround sound from a stereo amplifier.
