I think ultimately it's distance vs damage. All energy weapons damage drops off over distance. Cannon damage drops even most drastically than beam weapons. Torpedoes on the other hand have constant damage regardless of distance. Even though the damage from torpedoes is bursty it's till a massive amount of DPS. Especially when you have multuple Projectile DOFFS slotted.
