If you used four consoles with 30% boost each, then you'd have a 120% boost, plus the original 100%, for total damage of 220%, or, 2.2x that normal amount.

So:
(256x2.2)=563.2 raw damage per DHC, times 5 DHCs = 2,816 DPS

Add to that the two Mk XII Phaser turrets you're probably carrying, at base damage of 132 each.
So:
(132x2.2)=290.4 raw damage per turret, times 2 turrets = 580.8 DPS.

2,816 plus 580.8 means~~~Total is 3396.8 DPS for all phasers if you use 5 front weapons and 4 consoles.

If you used five consoles with 30% boost each, then you'd have a 150% boost, plus the original 100%, for total damages of 250%, or 2.5x that normal amount.

So,
(256x2.5)=640 raw damage per DHC, times 4 DHCs = 2,560 DPS

Add to that the three Mk XII Phaser turrets you're probably carrying, at base damage of 132 each.
So:
(132x2.5)=330 raw damage per turret, times 3 turrets = 990 DPS.

2,560 plus 990 means~~~Total is 3550 DPS for all phasers if you use 4 front weapons and 5 consoles.
******************************************
So, 4 front weapons with 5 consoles wins by more than 150 DPS.

This all assumes no torpedos, or Borg Kinetic Cutting Beam, etc. You'll have to do your own math if you want to create something that is not 100% energy weapons. It also assumes all Mk XII energy weapons, and all Mk XII Very Rare energy specific consoles.

This also ignores Crit chances, front DHCs having higher Crit values than rear turrets, etc. It's just base damage.
You are forgetting modifiers. While they don't come into play for tactical consoles, they do for weapons.

That would tip the balance back into their favor.

With 4x Tactical consoles, my DPS per DHC is ~1,300 (lower than actual, but I'm rounding down). If I have 5 DHCs, that's 5 x 1,300 = 6,500 combined DPS with the DHCs.

With 5x Tactical consoles, my DPS per DHC is ~1,400 (lower than actual, but I'm rounding down....each tactical console increases my DHC DPS by ~90 DPS). If I have 4 DHCs, that's 4 x 1,400 = 5,600 combined DPS with the DHCs.

I didn't forget anything. Modifiers are not base damage, and I was clear about the assumptions and limitations of my calcs. I also didn't mention set bonuses (like polaron for 3 piece JH set) or lots of other stuff. I can't calculate for all permutations.

Remember, your not losing a weapon here. You will lose a fore weapon but gain an aft weapon.

Someone did the math up there, the difference was 100 damage. The turret will add that 100 plus additional damage based on the consoles.

Chive on and prosper, eh?
