Dual beams have WAY less of a drain problem than arrays do, and in my experience will usually outperform an unbuffed dual heavy cannon in practical conditions owing to its wider arc of fire and lesser damage reduction from range.

(Though, I run mine with 4 single cannons and 3 turrets, with Rapid Fire 1 and 2... shreds stuff awfully nice.)
