That could come in very handy as I have a habit of frying JBL speakers every so often :D

i'll be doing my first recone very soon, a fane collosus 15b. i'm missing the foam filter from the vent in the back.. i presume improvising some other foam that will serve as a dust filter yet still allow air to flow easily through will do? other drivers i have have fairly open metal grills in this spot.

any quick suggestions for a tiny amount of foam?

You need open cell foam, I think it's usually 20ppi. I'll drop a piece in the post to you.

Must say that I found this recone guide invaluable information for my first attempt at a recone, I have just reconed an 18" Omega Pro, of which I am very pleased with the result.
 
The kit from Eminence was a lose parts one which doesn't come with any shims or anything other than the bare bones.  The info from Rotobars post was really comprehensive for making your own shims and was an ideal way to make sure that the v.c was centred on both axis.
 
My biggest problem was deciding on what glue to use!! after days of searching and dithering I finally decided to go for Evostick's new seriously strong glue.  It starts to go off after 3 mins, sets in 2 hours and is at full strength after 24hrs, it also dries clear.  So intially you do get a bit of time for any adjustments as long as it's not anything major!! All in all I found it to be a good glue especially as after a real good pounding the speaker is still all held together RESULT !!
