No, you obviously don't want to put anything to cover your subwoofer driver, ditch the acoustic treatment on top of those sono-tubes.
From your front view picture, I'm guessing from side view your RH/LH speakers are about 60-70% or so in front of your suboofer, so most likely you won't have much reflection issue with the mid-hi freq from those horns.
Only fact based way is to use REW, take ETC charts, and see if the reflections show up at your seating position(s).
Just a thought, why is your horn on the bottom?
If you flipped those 180 and horn on the top, then angled them slightly down at your HT seating then I'm guessing that would help mitigate any potential reflections off your sonotube baffle.
By Increasing the distance and angle from your horn to the top of your baffle.
In the end, not something to lose sleep over, just a minor/slight acoustic issue really.
