The puppy paws will spike through carpeting and insulation so your speakers will be solidly resting on your underlayment, presumably plywood flooring. They will also spike through your linoleum (if not immediately, then still relatively soon), so again your speakers will be solidly resting on your underlayment. Given this, the key difference will be control of mid to high frequency reflections off the floor. A decent area rug will absorb primary reflections almost as well as wall to wall carpeting. To contain secondary reflections well, I would recommend wall to wall carpeting. Good luck.
