Difference in 8 or 16 ohm speaker load?

Difference in 8 or 16 ohm speaker load?
Hi everyone,  
Following the ohm law the 16 ohm draws more current and the 8 Draws more volts. So is there any difference in sound?  
When trying to match my 2 ohm ot with an 4 ohm and an 16ohm speaker in paralel, the 16 ohm sounded mutch less louder then the 4Ohm. Logic for the voltage divider it makes? But does a speaker behave diferantly when it has the same powerspec as the other but has diferant ohm's. Soundwise?  
Hope to make sence john
