You probably saw some very old information on the forums. At one time, cannons shared a global cooldown, so 2-3 dual cannons were the maximum that you could have, cause any more would sit idle indefinitely.

Not the case now. Many of the top PvPers will run 4 DHC, or combinations of duals, DHCs and torps. Just keep in mind the more energy weapons you fire, the greater the drain on your power systems. Not too much of a problem if specced into EPS with consoles and weapon power efficiency.
