Yep. Have the same felt material on my Plat 4's.

I can vouch for the thick padding. When I moved my Plat's against the wall to use as center channels, sounded much better to my ears with a 1 inch think sound absorbing material attached to the back vs just the felt material. Vocals much cleaner and more distinct. Here is where I discuss: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=12878
Nothing to lose by trying. Try it temporarily to see if you like the effect or not. I remember a reviewer from BAS actually preferred the Plat's with a sound absorbing pad behind the ribbons.

RIP BILL D. RIP WRABBIT
On one I just see 4 pieces of tape that may have had little foam piece on it but the other has nothing.
But then these are the update to the 60" ribbons and I still have the original ribbons in my collection (with the X-overs)
I should probably bring them in the house instead of out in my storage room
