ohms are a frequency dependant resistance called "impedance". 8 ohms is twice the impedance of 4 ohms. Never let the ohms drop below what the amp is rated for. Higher is OK but you lose a certain amount of power from the amp.

You will require more reading to get a handle on this stuff. It's not near as simple as it looks. Google is your friend if you are just starting out.
