My Engineer, who flies a Beam Cruiser, has all Dmgx2 and Accx2 Andorian Beams, because that's how I roll.
On a ground map, the Andorian Single Beams do a base of 240, while the DBB does a base of 312. I SHOULD have clarified that in my original post, and that was my mistake. I meant these weapons to fall between the Single and Double Beams in terms of this damage, hence 280.

Not sure where your maths is, your possibly including the DMG mods (+5 DPV), or the Andorian stuff is that much better.
A Beam Array does 220 DPV & 176 DPS Mk XII Base Damage.
A Dual Beam Bank does 287 DPV & 229 DPS Mk XII Base Damage.
Compared to Cannons
A Turret does 99 DPV & 132 DPS Mk XII Base Damage.
A Single Cannon does 159 DPV & 212 DPS Mk XII Base Damage.
A Dual Cannon does 192 DPV & 256 DPS Mk XII Base Damage.
A Dual Heavy Cannon does 384 DPV & 256 DPS Mk XII Base Damage.
Looking at all the numbers together Your Beams should be
~253 DPV & ~204 DPS Mk XII Base Damage
Your basically asking for a beam version of the Single Cannons with an Arc mod. which means at best your getting 2 mod on them.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
