    Technically, yes, but should not be too significant. If you use two Airports, one bridging and allowed to be extended, and the other extends the wireless network of the first, then the two Aiports have to communicate with one another. That communication, and often cross-communication from one to the other will use part of the bandwidth available. However, with 802.11ac, your bottleneck will likely not be your wireless, but rather your Internet connection.
