I'm not a min-maxer, I just recall reading that going 4x Cannons, 3x Turrets can drain your weapons power enough that it's only marginally better energy-wise than 3x Cannons, 1x Torp, 3x Turrets. Since your Torpedo doesn't work off of weapons power, it won't cause you to overdraw on that.
Take what I say with a grain of salt, though. Like I said, I'm only recalling this info, not reading off of a guide or anything. It's still worth keeping in mind, but hopefully someone else will pop into the thread that knows more about it than I do.
The torpedoes also do the same damage no matter what the range but they can get shot down.
