Underdrive accessory pulleys are larger in diameter then stock, hence the extra belt length (which is irrelevant for the compressor rpm anyway). The greater pulley circumference means less accessory rpm. A smaller crank pulley has the same underdriving effect though.
"Driving is like a narcotic, an addiction that can take over lives. It ruins people, breaks families apart, and even kills. It’s habit that needs to be fueled. Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, I’m Nelson, and I’m a drivaholic."
