4 ohm or 8 ohm - Difference in Sound?

lonzo4 ohm or 8 ohm - Difference in Sound?
If an amp has a 4 ohm spkr out and an 8 ohm spkr out, is there be a sonic difference between the two? I mean, does an amp react differently because more of the transformer is used?  
Let's just say two identical cabinets are loaded with the same type speakers (your choice) except one is wired for four ohms and the other wired for eight ohms.....thoughts?
