I just got the fleet defiant. I was running four AP mag regulators with 3 DHCs, 3 turrets and 1 photon torpedo launcher.

Now I've got the Omega Adapted Borg Technology Set, Romulan Singularity Harness. 2 plasma turrets, and a plasma DHC. Should I stick with all energy consoles and go with 5 Plasma Infusers or should I add in 1 or 2 Ambiplasma Envelope consoles to go with the 2 plasma torpedo launchers?

Your main source of damage will still be your PDHCs. So run with Plasma Infusers.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

Plasma Infusers also increase the damage over time portion of plasma torpedos last I checked.

Just please, please run 3 DHC front you will get better performance.

So you think 2 more DHCs would be more DPS than the Romulan Singularity Harness? Run 3 DHCs, with the Omega Adapted Borg Technology Set and 2 plasma turrets?

3 dhc, 2 turrets and the KCB or 3 turrets...5 plasma consoles. having all set pieces does not increase your dmg output.
Go pro or go home

New shiney does not mean good shiney.

3 DHC + Torp of your choice up front (I go quantum personally)
3 turrets rear, cutting beam will lower damage output of cannons due to firing cycles and weapon energy mechanics.

Those sets are designed for broadsiding cruisers, not escorts. Other than the console that is.

I disagree, on my fleet tac retro with 5 purple antiproton mags, the kcb does about the same DPS as a fleet turret with rapid fire 3. And the 2 piece bonus is worth the very very small difference.

And what DPS did your DHCs loose because of it?

It is not that the cutting beam is bad so to speak, it is that you do not want your DHCs firing at a lower power level then maximum.

None. The kcb draws the same power as a turret, and when the bonus procs all 4 dhcs fire at 125. Regular crits of 10k plus off all 4 straight after another.
