How would beams on 9 foot ceiling work?
I’m thinking about putting beams on my living room Ceiling and paint white—ones about 4 Inches down. I have 9 ft ceilings. Would it make my ceiling look too low. Have speakers, vents, recessed lights, and security and thinking would break up the view of all this stuff on ceiling.

The corners are not square so how would I butt them up together?
I think that would really look good. Instead of solid wood beams, you could secure a board to your ceiling studs and simply build a box around the board to make it appear as a beam. They are called faux ceiling beams. This would lower the cost and reduce the weight of a solid wood beam. Here is an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3218SS7W2Fo
Sounds like you have a great idea and I don't think it will make your ceiling too low since you have taller ceilings. Have you considered "faux" beams? Here's a site I located that has them in a wide variety of styles & finishes but I think they are also available at the big box home improvement stores (or they can order for you).
Would look good!
I think your ceiling would look to low. A 6 foot man is 72 inch’s your ceiling at beam height is 104 inch’s that leaves 32 inch’s for head room. And that’s hoping your ceiling is fairly level. Only ecxception I see would-be if it was a room flooded with natural light.
