My iPad pro, my iPhone 11plus both work great with my JBL Onbeat venue Bluetooth Speaker. I need it to work with my new computer using Apple Music to help my students in learning their music and singing along with the music through the speaker. How can I get the new computer to recognize the older JBL speaker?

It should work fine with the computer. What happens when you try to pair them? Can you detail exactly what goes on?

When I try to pair my new computer with my older (but still works great with my iphone and ipad) JBL Onbeat Bluetooth Speaker, The computer bluetooth does not recognize the speaker. However, it does recognize another speaker, a Klipsch, that we also own, so I've had to use it. Maybe the older JBL isn't recognized due to it's age. It plays at a much larger volume than any other speaker I've tried, so I wish it would pair with my computer. Pairing to the JBL doesn't show up on the BlueTooth preferences.

When you have a newer computer supporting a newer revision of Bluetooth it should have no issues pairing to a speaker using an older version of Bluetooth. You are 100% sure that you are initiating pairing properly on the JBL?
