Yes, as said, forget the headphone-out to power speakers.

You can add a simple "Y" connector to each of the speaker out ports. Then the problem becomes an impedance issue. If it was made for 8-ohm speaker use, which it likely was, you can double the speakers, as long as they are 16-ohm speakers. Since it's an old piece of equipment and probably not worth much, I would take a chance and just go with another 8-ohm speaker and keep my fingers crossed. If you use thinner wire, that will create some resistance, and bring up the impedance also.

Another thought is adding an L-pad for each set of speakers you want, all fed from one output on the receiver. Each room volume can be controlled individually. This will require some soldering, and mounting them in a project box would be nice. Here is an example, but you might be able to find them even cheaper. Radio Shack has them in stock also.
