Yes, Dual Beam Bank. I'm using the beam bank + overload along with rapid fire to take their shields down quick and then using the quantums with high yield and KHG bonus for the hull smashing. If I time it right they won't have time to react before the torpedoes hit. With the 3 DHC's it gave them a longer time to use shield buffs before their shields completely failed on one facing. With the DBB + Quantum it doesn't seem to be as good for sustained damage, but the spike damage seems better. I started off with a Phased Tetryon DBB with [ACC]x2, but the overload shot seemed to miss a lot so I got a regular Tetryon with [ACC]x3, which helped some, but I still had a lot of misses, which is why I added the tractor beam.
