Hoping that you all can help me understand a basic impedance question.

In theory, if I had a speaker that was at a lower impedance rating than the ampifyer (eg 4 ohms in an 8 ohm amp), could a resistor be added in series to the speaker to bring the total impedance up? Would a 4 ohm resistor be the appropriate choice?

I do recognize that I'm asking a very very basic question here. Humor me.
