About a year ago I was looking into getting a new system for my house. It was a large room (22' ft x 24' ft with back opening to another 17'), with hardwood floors and wood finished walls. I ended up with the following set up:
1) Klipsch RF-82 towers, RC-62 center, RS-52 surrounds
2.) Onkyo NR-818 receiver
3.) Panasonic ST65 Plasma
4.) XBOX One
5.) 2 x PSA XV15 subs
6.) 2013 Mac Mini
7.) Panasonic PT-AE8000U Projector
8.) Elunevision REF 4K tension 120" screen
Anyways, one year later I'm pretty disappointed. My friends' systems which are sometimes HTIBs are more full than mine. I'm thinking that the size of the room might be the problem. I also don't feel like I'm getting enough from the centre channel. I used the Audyssey MultEQ XT32 to set the system up as well. Do you guys think I should try to get new set of speakers? Is my room not configured correctly? Should I hire a professional to set up the audio? Any other suggestions?

It sounds like your Audyssey setup is limiting your output. Try resetting the amp back to factory settings and use it as-is for a few days, uncalibrated. It's not difficult to redo the Audyssey setup later if you need to.
Your Klipsch speakers should sound plenty "full" and should fill that space nicely. With wood covered walls and hardwood floors you are going to have serious reflections / echos which will amplify and distort the highs making vocals nearly intelligible and make it painful to listen to at loud volumes.
Definitely need some acoustical treatments in there.
