I actually very much enjoy the dual beams on my Excalibur class Cruiser...
And the have a much better bank than even class IV phaser arrays...

Well I've always used some beam weapon in front and back, with the Light Cruiser I had torpedos up front first Photon then Quantum. In my Crusier I have Disrupter Beam up front and back had a Photon, then Quantum, now a Plasma Torpedo up front and Photon Mines in back. Yes, the reason I've kept that is exactly because of the slow turning ability of the Cruiser and the great 250' arc of the beams.
