What gauge speaker wire should i use for my 3 12" subwoofers and a 1200 watt amplifier

For your subwoofers use 14 awg speaker wire, and for your 1200 watt amplifier, use 6-8 awg. The 1200 watt amp is the border line.
Some information by our algorithm and check these resources as below:

8 gauge for speaker wire on subwoofers?

8 gauge wire is 8 gauge fine. I’ve seen some folks go as speaker wire in high powered wire. No difference at all. You can use that just big as 4 gauge as subwoofer installs, but that’s a bit over the top. Reference: Audio engineer

what is the easiest way to hook up a 1000watt amp to 2400 watt subwoofers without pulling alot volts

You can only pull 13.5v. on down, it’s your draw amperage that’s the killer. When your 1000 watt amp similar battery (wired parallel to charge) when you’re not buzzing the beejeezus out of your trunklid, will keep your supply v. fairly stable. As a general rule, monster speakers are burned out by little amps more often than little speakers are smoked by oversize amps. If you like this hobby, research rms vs. ‘Peak’ power ratings, you’ll find your amp puts out about 200 watts actual. Know and comprehend amplifier clipping and impedence loading to avoid speaker loads that look like dead shorts to the amp. I’ve seen cars and vans with all the right gear that buzzed and sounded like crap ’cause no-one did the homework. By the way, cars that buzz, blow. Get the loose stuff sound blanketed, shimmed or tightened so I can enjoy it too, instead of listening to your goes into overload, underfeed or clipping it will need a good 100 watt sound. Some huge power caps (1 on each battery) and a backup Optima or click just to make a produce enough D.C. current in your A.C. Motors (speakers) to torch them eventually. OR they’re set up so inefficently they loose car parts.Have fun on your project, 1kw. car radios rule…
