The driver size difference between RS1 and BR2 is only 0.25", I don't think that's significate at all..
RS1 is only slightly smaller than BR2 yet it weights more than BR2 which sugguest more dense cabinet material been used..
If you check the specs, you will see their frequency response is almost identical and 80w vs 100w, not a whole lot different..
I think RS1 has a more focused and balanced bass, if you define bass by loudness, than BR2 does sound louder..
However, I like the bass from RS1 more because I think it's a tighter and more in control bass..
Simply put, RS1 uses better driver and better cabinet performance, but again, it all depend on your budget..
I got my BR2 for $300 and RS1 for $450, I think they are both well worth the price tag..
