What 'aft cannons' are you talking about? if you mean turrets, they're always in arc.. and as for fore cannons, do you mean the duals or singles? Even a cruiser shouldn't have *much* trouble keeping something in a single cannon arc using some tricks.
And, you can run Single Cannons fore and Beam Arrays aft which give you a 35 degree broadside. Again, not as wide as 70 degrees, but certainly more damaging than just running all beams.
