No sadly I'm in Canada we make great audio but we are getting screwed sidewise when it comes to deals.

Ahh, gotcha. I would still probably avoid a 20 year old sub, though

It would be entering a dual sub set up where the other cheap sub as the same power 150w 600w peak but goes only to 35hz. I'm looking to add some depth to my set up.

Any advice is welcomed.
Even if you were to disregard the age, it isn't a very good sub. You should be able to do better for $150. If you would like to stick with the Energy brand, you should be able to find a used S10.3 for around $200. Also, the Mirage omni S10 has the same amp and driver as the S10.3 so it's pretty much the same thing.
