12 volts or less is troubling as a new battery and alternator should be keeping this battery fully charged with standby voltage at least around 12.5 volts. Wiring and the drive belt are some considerations. If short trips, under 10-15 miles, are part of daily driving then the few miles driven may not allow the alternator enough time to recharge a battery.
