I was doing to research (slacking off) at work today and came upon the article for Phase Cannons at Memory Alpha. Turns out the NX's could have 12 phase cannons.

When initially installed on the first NX-class vessel in 2151, the phase cannons were located on the ventral side of the ship. Two were placed at the bow of the vessel, while one was placed at the aft on the ship's starboard side. (ENT: "Silent Enemy", "Fallen Hero") By 2152 the first vessel of this class, the NX-01 Enterprise, was outfitted to hold at least four cannons on the dorsal saucer section; two at the bow and two closer to the stern, with one on each of the catamaran-like sections. (ENT: "Shockwave, Part II", "Singularity") An additional ventral aft cannon was added on the port section of the NX class some time after the first cannons' installation. (ENT: "Future Tense", "Similitude") Two more cannons were installed on the ventral part of the saucer section, only closer to the bow than the first cannons. (ENT: "Bounty", "Storm Front, Part II") Yet two more pairs of cannons were added to the dorsal and ventral side of the nacelle pylons, near the impulse rockets, some time prior to 2154. (ENT: "E²", "The Aenar")

That would appear to be 12 (4 Dorsal Saucer, 4 Ventral Saucer, 2 on the Port Catamaran and 2 on the Starboard Catamaran).

I especially recommend the discussion for this article as an example of why you should never take anything so seriously, not even Star Trek.
