Has anyone set up or used an edgerouter and or pfsense/opnsense for an extra security with their rt2600ac?

Looks like a pretty powerful system and was wondering if anyone had this setup using their rt2600ac as the main gateway and the edgerouter for extra firewall protection.

from base point of view you need count that:
Dual-Core 880 MHz, MIPS1004Kc in the ER X is small part of Syno’s Dual core 1.7 GHz
also half size of DDR3 RAM in the ER X

these two main limitations are necessary for useful or painful throughput keeping when you open maxed guardians in your second router.
I don't have the RT2600
but use a Sophos XG in a pico PC (consumption 6 W)
for router and firewall ->
enterprise software with a free license, on a mini box that costed as much as a good consumer router
I don't need all these features,
but it came handy in many matters
It is free with the restriction that it uses 4 cores of the CPU and 6 gb of the RAM,
no matter how much you have, but it is more than enough for home usage
