Subwoofer to match room size and my equipment!

In my pursuit to create a good sound stage for music and cinema, this is another horizontal step. I have Focal Chorus 726V speakers and Cambridge Audio CXR200 AVR. The room these are placed has rectangular dimensions with TV to sitting space being 12 feet (I'll consider this as width) and the space left to right of sitting area spreads rectangularly to a distance of 25 to 27 feet. There's 18 feet towards the right of the speakers and approximately 7 feet from the left one. Now the question is should I buy subs that belong to the Focal family or otherwise. Is it advisable to buy passive or active subs? What should the specifications be? I would greatly appreciate your suggestions. I am a novice and I have compiled this system with the help of members here so if you are specific with models, it'll help.

Another matter to ponder for me is the centre speaker. Now upon decent amount of reading here, the verdict on whether one is needed seems to be split right in the centre. I currently experience a lovely 'phantom centre'. My only hesitation is that am I going to actually spend money on spoiling this sound by getting a 'centre' rather than enhancing it. Also there seems to be two schools of thought on the horizontal aspect of the centre speaker. Are these really factors for a room as small as mine? Your experience would greatly benefit me.

Thank you.
