I'd greatly recommend the Ferengi torpedo for such a setup...granted, you may only be able to equip one of them, but you'll need the 180 degree firing arc it gets.

Unfortunately, Ferengi rockets may not be good, as the description says you can't use Torp: High Yield or Torp: Volley.
If anyone has tried them, it would be nice to hear.

That may be, but you still have your other torpedo launchers to use with those. The Ferengi launcher will still benefit from any +kinetic damage you may have added.

If I ever manage to get one for my cruiser, I plan to swap my Torpedo Spread for a second Fire At Will. But that's only because I use the spread in combination with chronitons for a cheap AoE snare and not for dps anyway.

I did it with my assault cruiser. It's not bad, though you really need the best RCS thrusters you can get, and you need to cruiser at half- 3/4 speed to help your turn, even so sometimes its a ***** getting those torps to bear, and even so, you're not making use of the ones on the other end of the ship. I was constantly turning front to rear while i was broadsiding larger targets.

that being said, its possible. I upped all my dmg on quantums, and even hitting shields, they took them down pretty quick. I switched to the excelsior retrofit though, and with the better turn its just much better. If I go back to the soverign, itll be a beam boat.
