That and cannons have a narrower arc, which makes them even harder to line up than DBBs.
Single cannons have a 180 degree arc, and do very respectable damage (not DHC quality, but with appropriate selection they can easily break 1k per tick). The downside is their rapid falloff (which if you're a siege platform is a serious concern) and the as-mentioned clunkiness with the Atrox' boff seating.

Now that I'm thinking about it, the experimental rommie array would be perfect for filling that third slot, while carrying hybrid plasma/disruptors aft for the hull cracking debuff.
