Default Serpentine Belt Issues

I had bad clunking noise coming from my drive belt tensioner when I started the car cold. So I replaced the drive belt tensioner thinking it got old. While replacing I noticed the alternator pulley wasn't even aligned with any other pulleys. So moved the alternator over as much as possible to be aligned, got it aligned after some small modifications. Well the next morning I started my car and the noise was back and the belt started to shred. Replaced the belt hoping it had a defect, nope and the noise is back. All pulleys are in working order and bearings are good. Any help would be great this car is going to drive me nuts. I cant even drive it at the moment.
