Abstract: The Rankin convolution type Dirichlet series $ D_{F,G}(s)$ of Siegel modular forms $ F$ and $ G$ of degree two, which was introduced by Kohnen and the second author, is computed numerically for various $ F$ and $ G$. In particular, we prove that the series $ D_{F,G}(s)$, which shares the same functional equation and analytic behavior with the spinor $ L$-functions of eigenforms of the same weight are not linear combinations of those. In order to conduct these experiments a numerical method to compute the Petersson scalar products of Jacobi Forms is developed and discussed in detail.
