The more dense the area rug the better. But it will never absorb sound as well as a thick pad and carpet. The area rug I use is a 2.5 m diameter. Looks like a 1/2" dia. rope coiled up, its quite dense.
I did not see any thickness of those carpet tiles, only that they have a foam back. I doubt they would be as dense.
