Beam firing arcs are balanced with their power.

If you want more firing arc in a weapon, mount a turret. That's 360 degree firing arc. You will shoot all your weapons (minus torpedos if you have any equipped) against your target regardless of position. But obviously you pay for that with reduced damage. You cannot have it all.

In short, IF the devs made a weapon with an arc wider than a beam array, they would reduce their power accordingly.
