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.
That only works if you can mount all quads. right now you can only have 1 and would gimping your damage just to boost 1 weapon system. If you could put 3 or 4 quads on a ship then that could work. right now though running 1 quad and 2 to 3 DHC would make that worthless.
