This is what irritates me about gaming companies. Caving in to whiny kids when they fail to use their brains.
Quad cannons are fine as they are. Their purpose was to give ships the ability to fight at high speeds while retaining almost the same damage as dual heavy cannons (which eat up wep power thus preventing high engine speed settings).
There is no need to buff them. Instead make the engine power setting a bigger % of the damage output of the guns. Aka a quad cannon running 70 engine 50 weapon (as an example) should be equivalent to a dual heavy cannon running at 90 weapon power. Currently its the equivalent of running the dual heavy at 80 weapon power.
