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.
My Fed Fleet Escort setup:
Fore Weapons: (4) AP DHC
Aft Weapons: (3) AP Turret
Engineering Consoles: (3) EPS Flow Regulators
Science Consoles: Assimilated Universal, Shield Emitter Amplifiers
Tactical: (4) AP Mag Regulators
With three EPS my weapons power stays elevated above 100/100.
Use the following skills in order for MAXIMUM EFFECT!
1) Power to Weapons
2) Tactical Team
3) Rapid Fire
Yes, Brute force is that simple.
