There is absolutely no net benefit to mixing energy types. You're losing out on significant DPS by using Prefire Chambers instead of type-specific energy consoles for a single type, and even more so by using Directed Energy Distribution Manifolds on a cannon-using ship because DEDMs do not boost cannon (including turret) damage at all. You get in return for your lost DPS a small chance of a secondary proc that will often be negligible, while decreasing the chance (by decreasing volume of fire) of your primary weapon type's proc.
