I have my 10g emp tank all setup and have 2 25wt bulbs on it. In the very corners the temps are in the low 70's but most of the tanks is above 75F to 80F is this ok.

That sounds good to me, mine hover in the 25° - 28°C range (77° - 82° F). if your scorpion likes it warmer or cooler they can go to the appropriate side of the tank to do so.

<EDIT> I should add these are ranges from just below surface/substrate, the ambient air is 30° - 32°C (86° - 89° F)

Its good to provide a temperature gradiant in the tank so they can regulate there body temp. and choose what part they like. Humidity is also importent with emps, and normal bulbs tend to dry things out a lot, needing frequant missting, have you tryed heat mats on the side of your tank
