Negative. A single turret on an escort (4/3 config) running 2 copies of rapid fire or scatter volley accounts for between 8-12% of total damage done.

If you replace that turret with a cutting beam, it will do between 5-7% total damage.

Turrets are only puny weapons when you discount the fact they also work with rapid and scatter fire.
