Basically, DHCs hit harder thanks to the way the entire energy system works out. It is too a large effect a question of how long a weapon cycle is and at what point the drain actually takes effect. The end effect is that -12 power costs the DHCs less damage than -10 power cost the DCs and beams.
would i be correct in assuming that this person is saying that Beam Arrays and Dual Cannons suffer less of a damage drain then Dual Heavy Cannons?
