These are over-generalizations and actually don't even make sense.

There's no "smaller box with a smaller hole will ring more" generalization to be made, it depends entirely on the implementation. And all else being the same, dropping the box resonant frequency would decrease the Q-factor in a speaker cab, not increase it.
I stand to be corrected here but basically the larger the box of a speaker and the bigger the port, the less the port is doing to fortify the bottom end of the speaker.
Over-generalization again. If anything, the larger box and bigger port can be more efficient, thus better fortifying the bottom end. Your experience is anecdotal and not the rule.
