ArcticBreeze has the best & most practical approach here.....as one probably isn't concerned about absolute power output, an 8 Ohm output to a 16 Ohm load is "gentle" on an amplifier....this approach is the most logical.
On the illustrated wiring of the switch, ignore the "output jack" and the wiring part of it (Unless you want to add more drivers??). Like a big HF horn? (both set for 16 ohms...to get 8 Ohms)
Dual pole dual throw (DPDT) switches are everywhere...Radio Shack AKA ("rat Shack) They still have them!!...Individuals do recess mounting of switches often times...to prevent accidental activations.
