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 drain from the 4th cannon might in fact hurt your power drain, but the advantage of running the 4th cannon is you can put max skills in energy damage and none in projectile. Also, your tac consoles affect all weapons, not just some.
