You may want to put the sub name in your title to get some more traffic. I should be able to provide a decent answer in a couple days, because I just bought the exact sub used from someone on a different forum. Looking forward to trying it out. From the research I've done, it seems like a very good performer in that price range. By the way, that is the MK1 version of the VTF-2. They are currently on MK3, but if you do some searching you can find some differences between the versions.
A first generation VTF2 will be pretty old, probably around 10 years old. Things wear out on speakers after awhile, like the rubber gaskets and cone foam. I wouldn't pay $225 for it. Save your money and get a brand new Hsu STF2, you will get something that will last a lot longer, and is covered by a warranty. I think a old VTF2 might be an ok deal at around $125 or less. I just don't think it will have much life left in it.
