If you're really stuck on using torps, I'd suggest reducing it to one fore and one aft.
According to one of the developers on a recent episode of STOked (forget which one), having more than 4-6 beam arrays drops damage output dramatically due to power drain.
As such, it's probably a good idea to have one torp fore, and one torp aft, or to consider another weapon that isn't an array (e.g. DBB).
