    Will the R-625FA be able to handle 150W continuous without damage?

    Having extra power within the receiver is actually a benefit. It will give you greater volume and clarity at lower levels. However, you must be careful you are not pushing the speakers too hard. Make sure you are not pushing that receiver more than 75% on the volume knob and you should not have any issues.

    I picked up the Atmos bundle from Costco. Do I pick the receiver purely on the 100w R-625FA towers or do I need a receiver that's a lot more than 100w to cover the rest of the bundle too (Bundle plus an additional two R-12SW subs)? For example, would a Marantz SR5015 be enough and safe for the setup? 5.2.2 setup.

    With the system you are describing, you will want to follow the RMS of the R-625FA (100W per channel into 8 ohms). The R-12SW is a powered subwoofer, meaning it will pull its power from the wall outlet, not the AV receiver. The receiver will merely send a passive signal to the subwoofer via RCA, which will then be amplified by the built in subwoofer amplifier.
