I have 8 black phantom tetras already in there and a longfin bristlenose in QT. I was planning to add some kuhlis as well. Would 1 be okay as a centerpiece?

I do not agree with the concept of "centerpiece" fish. Most all fish live in schools or shoals and certainly are "happier" if I can use that word with others of their own. Angelfish get big and are occasionally aggressive. Especially one alone. Either get a small group of angelfish and keep them by themselves or skip angelfish altogether.
