It looks to me like the cannons/DBB should be about 12% higher. In actual performance it should look something like this:
If you're not taking energy drain into account then that would make a big difference. If you just add up each of the damage from the beams it will look a lot higher, but just looking at the damage of 7 or 8 beams without considering energy drain is pretty pointless. Even at 125 weapon power there are serious diminishing returns going beyond about 4 beams.
Also, as pointed out above, if you're not using tactical consoles that help your cannons then their damage will be significantly reduced.
