You donít really need EPS for firing the weapons just changing power settings in mid fight or dropping from max impulse. I run 6 Beam Arrays on my broadside Cruiser with 3 x +6 Weapon Power consoles and 1 EPS. For running lots of weapons its best to go 125 weapon power and have multiple copies of EP:W. The EP:W wont help with the max weapon power since your already at 125, it really helps as a buffer for weapon power drain. Instead of your power dropping to 65 from 125 when you fire all 6 weapons it now only drops to 85 so you do much more DPS in the long run.
