Do plan to get to 3dhc 1 torp front and 3 turrets in back back. Now i would like to know wich type of DHC to use and what consoles i should mount.
First: Stick with one single type of energy weapons. In general phasers are considered the most powerful choice since it can shut subsystems (shields!) down, followed by disruptor and antiproton. Plasma can be considered as worst choice, especially in PvP (most sets have an inherent plasma resistance)
As for consoles: Always use the specific ones for your type, they give a bigger bonus than the general purpose ones.

A lot of 9ers, good if you have a specific role in mind your char should perform, not so good if you like flexibility (in that case you should usually go with 6)

Due to global cooldowns you can't chain more than 2 of your 4 team abilities, might consider to replace at least one with another ability.

Beside that it comes down to the individual preferences and your focus (PvP, PvE, STFs) to decide which BO ability could be used in which slot.
