I am assuming all tensioner components you replaced were new?

Sounds like the bushing attached to the tensiouner shock has worn out. Typically announces itself with a clanking sound at idle but smooths out when driving.

About $2 fix if this is the case. One test to perform is to take a screwdriver and apply pressure to the shock mount while the engine is at idle and see if the noise goes away. If it does, there is your problem...
