Magnadyne M1-CD replacement

I ran the engine starting battery down & I used the boast from the coach batteries to start it. The radio is dead. I have gone through the checks. push reset, 12 volts on both battery leads , the ground is good. Per Mark at Magnadyne, the radio is done. This is in a 2008 Ford E450. The opening for the radio is only 4 1/4 high , need 4 1/2 for either M3 or M4 radio.
Need suggestions on a replacement radio. I would like AM/FM, cd, & weather band

Problem solved. Magnadyne sells a Ford Din radio adapter. It fills in the space so you can mount a 1 Din radio. Easy to install! Hard to find a 1 Din radio with the weather channels. But marine radios do have it. I found a Dual AMB600W that fits my needs. Total cost , about $150. for adapter & radio.
